International Men’s Day is celebrated on 19th November every year. This day is being celebrated in more than 70 countries in the world. Men’s International Day was inaugurated back in 1992 on 7th February by Thomas Oaster. The aim of International Men’s Day celebration was to promote Gender balance in the society and to represent the importance of the various important roles being played by the Men in today’s world.
There is no doubt or argument in the point that Men and Women are the two solely pillars on which the world’s building is based on however if we look closely, in most of the countries the burden on Men’s shoulder is slightly higher as compared to Women. Especially in the Asian countries the whole family which sometimes even include 8-10 family members are dependents over a single Man, who bears the economic pressures to earn for the lively hood for all his family members and try to fulfill their life hood needs in the best possible manners.
This Economic pressure sometimes creates depression and effects the men’s health. In some worst cases these psychological issues caused the happenings of Men’s suicide incidents.
International Men’s Day is celebrated with different themes each year for the awareness of different issues related to Men. In 2016 the theme was “Stop Male Suicide” and in 2015 theme was “Working to expand reproductive options for men”
International Men’s day is celebrated to represent the positive aspects of male identity in the society irrespective of the race, religion and country. It’s an effort to promote the culture of humanity and respect to make this world a better place to live for all the human soles.
